On the final night of the Celtic Colours Music Festival, we dined at The Olive Tree. You need reservations for this restaurant as it is so popular with the locals as well as visitors to the area. I chose the "Special" of the evening which was a Mediterranean soup & a creamy/spicy ravioli stuffed with steak. We had two appetizers... More

On a repeat visit to this very nice bistro, which we recommend. To our dismay we were confronted with an additional charge of $1.00 to for a ramekin dish of salad dressing for our Greek Salad that we felt did not have an adequate amount of dressing when served. For this lovely place it seemed a "cheap shot" for an... More

We ate here for the second time this Thanksgiving while enjoying a "get away" weekend in Sydney. The restaurant is very small & intimate but you don't feel like you are hearing your neighbouring tables conversations at all.....the lay out is well done. Can't say enough about the food & service! Delicious meals & scrumptious desserts! Large portions & the... More

We were visiting the Sydney Area on a Friday evening and took Trip Advisor's recommendation and tried the Olive Tree Bistro. The seating area is small (but intimate) and they were totally booked, however there was a cancellation so we ended up with a table immediately. We ordered the Basil Pesto Gnocchi and the Roasted Portabella Mushroom Ravioli. Both meals... More

I brought 4 friends from Massachusetts last week. Received excellent timely service from Gerard " with a G". The menu has something for everyone and we had a great time. Make sure you have reservations, it's a small place with limited seating.

This was our first visit to this quaint little restaurant that is "way off" the beaten path in Sydney. Our waitress, Angie was an absolute delight and really added to the experience. We had several special requests and she didn't hesitate with fulfilling them. The food was absolutely delicious and VERY reasonable priced. In fact, we enjoyed our meal there... More

First off, the atmosphere is wonderful. The food is like an explosion of 'Delishousness' in every Bite! From their appetizers and main courses to desserts and wonderful Service here .... I give them a huge 10 out out 10! To those Soup lovers out there....if you haven't yet experienced Chef Will's devine soup creations... You are missing out, simply Amazing!... More
